CLME+ Project: 6 years of continued contributions to the marine environment in review - CLME+ HUB

The CLME+ Project: a review of 6 years of continued contributions towards a healthier marine environment

After 6 years of implementation, the UNDP/GEF Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems Project (CLME+) invites the region to review its achievements. In the own words of all its co-executing partners, the project shows its best practices and results on ocean governance, capacity building, implementation of Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) and Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF), sustainable livelihoods, investments for the protection of the marine environment, knowledge management, and joint monitoring.

The Journey Continues

In an effort to continue supporting the achievement of the long-term vision of the CLME+ initiative and the 10-year SAP, a new project is being proposed: Protecting and Restoring the Ocean’s natural Capital, building Resilience and supporting region-wide Investments for sustainable Blue socio-Economic development (PROCARIBE+). The PROCARIBE+ project concept note (PIF) was approved at the 60th GEF Council on June 2021, which marks the beginning of the PROCARIBE+ “PPG Phase”, during which the detailed Project Proposal Package will be developed together with the participating countries and (prospective) project partners.  

PROCARIBE+ project started its preparation phase mid-June 2021 and is meant to begin its implementation one year later in 2022. This new project aims to build on the results from the UNDP/GEF CLME (2009-2014) and CLME+ (2015-2021) Projects, and to give continuity to (a) the implementation of the 10-year CLME+ SAP, and (b) several related key outputs and outcomes from the CLME+ Project. Within this framework, the project aims: to implement integrated ocean management arrangements (regional and national) -including through enhanced collaboration among LME’s, a Regional Seas Convention and Regional Fisheries Bodies; to enable and develop sustainable and resilient ocean-based (blue) economies including through Marine Spatial Planning, initiatives for habitat protection and restoration (Marine Protected Areas, Other Effective Conservation Measures and Blue Carbon), for sustainable fisheries and addressing land-based sources of pollution. The interventions will take into account the cross-cutting issues of climate change, gender, and post-covid recovery, and work towards catalyzing the next iteration of key regional processes such as the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis and the Strategic Action Programme (TDA/SAP)
